Community and The Hangover star Ken Jeong continues to crack us up, this time with his turn as a goofy pigeon in the animated family feature Birds of Paradise, available on DVD, Digital HD and Video on Demand Tuesday, and we have an exclusive look behind the scenes at Ken's improv comedy chops!
In the exclusive clip, we get to watch Ken deliver an alternate take in the voiceover booth, then detail the lovable nature of his bird-brained character.
Awarded the DOVE seal of approval, the film follows Jack (voiced by Drake Bell), an ordinary sparrow with dreams of becoming an extraordinary bird. In love with a canary who has escaped from her cage, Jack one day gets splattered with brightly colored paint and suddenly resembles an exotic songbird. Believing his new appearance will attract his crush, he heads out on a wild journey to ultimately learn that it’s not what you look like on the outside, but who you are on the inside that truly counts. Ashley Tisdale, Jon Lovitz, Jane Lynch, Keith David and many others provide their voice talents for this mad-cap avian romp, written and produced by Mychal Simka.
Arriving on DVD (plus Digital UltraViolet) exclusively at Walmart and Redbox from Lionsgate Home Entertainment, the Birds of Paradise disc contains the bonus features Bringing the Characters to Life - At the Recording Studio with the film's stars featurette and a Sneak Peek at Award-Winning Miniscule Shorts.
